Hywel Thomas

Senior Associate Solicitor

Hywel is an Associate Solicitor at CFG Law and has a long-standing career in personal injury. He has worked gaining access to justice for injured people since 1996 and always puts himself out there to champion the needs of the people.

He enjoys difficult cases which he can get his teeth stuck in to and has the ability to go through all aspects of a claim with a fine tooth comb to ensure no stone is left unturned.

His attention to detail is unparalleled and is a true asset for any client. His friendly nature makes him the perfect candidate for clients to talk to and open up about their experiences, without any fear of judgement.

Hywel also sits on the board of Trustees of 42nd Street, a Manchester-based charity who provides support for young people who are under stress. It provides early intervention and better access to talking therapy to help children before they reach crisis point.
